Student Leadership Teams
The Student Council meets half-termly and is coordinated by
Miss S. Twist. It comprises form representatives from each tutor group, chosen by election at the start of the academic year. We have also elected a Chair, Scarlett Dalton in Year 10 and a Vice Chair, Khadijah Rahbi in Year 9 who will lead our meting
The Student Councilors contribute their views to a number of aspects of academy life, for example, facilities available at break and lunchtime, the charities supported by each faculty, trips and activities offered during AEE weeks and the memorial for a former member of staff.
The Student Council has led on improving the sports facilities at our school so that students are able to play basketball, football and table tennis at lunchtimes.
Harris Student Commission
The Harris Student Commission, who are a group of approximately 12 Students from Y7-Y10, complements the work of the Student Council. The commission is comprised of our Most Able Students and our students who exceed expectations. They undertake an action research project within school to drive improvements in teaching and learning as strive for educational excellence. Last year in 2016, the group conducted an investigation about revision techniques, which they presented to all the other Harris Secondary Academies at the Student Commission Conference. This year they will investigate which type of feedback leads to the most progress for all groups of pupils.
